Their father was an auctioneer/ estate agent. He was an auctioneer/valuer in the 1901 Census when the family was living at 8 Colehill, Tamworth, Staffordshire. The siblings’ birthplace was then stated as Comberford, Staffordshire.

No military records for Edward have been found but his younger brother George served in the Royal Army Service Corps.

His father had returned to the Tamworth area because his death in September 1914 was registered there. His mother died in Ashby de la Zouch (her birthplace) in 1937. Their time in Stamford was quite short.
